Here are a few pictures of the shirt that I made my two year old. For me it was practice for him it is wonderful. It is thread sketched with my own drawings of the fire truck, truck, car and 18 wheeler (on the back).

Unfortunately, I neglected to take pictures of the shirt before putting it on him and of course he didn't want to take it off once he had it on.


and


Edited to add pictures without the boy inside.









Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

Ah! Finally trucks and cars I like!!! Your design is beautiful, and I'd like to know exactly what you did, too, because I could totally stomach my kid wearing trucks if they looked like that! More than stomach, I'd be proud.

oh man, that looks so good. i gotta try that. and i mean for my clothes too! ha!

how do you find the stitches hold up on stretchy tshirt fabric? any breakage or does the design have enough give that it doesn't happen? i just bought a bunch of tank tops (for myself) all the same style in different colours and i think this idea would make them all so super special.
some for the kids first though, of course! Cheesy

Very nice! I know from experience that it's very difficult to do!

Thank you for the compliments.

You don't need any special machines to do this. I just used my regular sewing machine. It allows me to drop my feed dogs and I keep it in a straight stitch and just move along the pattern. 

I use Solvy which is a water soluble stabilizer to trace my patterns onto (using a sharpie marker, since it is permanent and it won't bleed) and either hoop it to the front of the shirt or tape it down using low tack tape. 

The t-shirt knit didn't stretch very much at all, hardly any, since the stabilize was taped to the top.

Of course my designs don't actually look like that, they are much cleaner than  what ended up on the t-shirt, but I kinda like the look that came out.
